True Blood to Experience True Death in 2014


HBO's long running supernatural drama True Blood will come to an end when its seventh season finishes in 2014. The premium cable network made the announcement on Tuesday.

“True Blood has been nothing short of a defining show for HBO,” noted Lombardo. “Alan Ball took the books by Charlaine Harris, assembled a brilliant cast led by the magnificent Anna Paquin in the role of Sookie Stackhouse, and crafted a show that has taken its many devoted fans on an Unforgettable journey. Alan passed the baton to Brian Buckner, who led our fantastic writers and crew in crafting a spectacular sixth season, and he will lead us through the seventh and final season of this amazing show. Together with its legions of fans, it will be hard to say goodbye to the residents of Bon Temps, but I look forward to what promises to be a fantastic final chapter of this incredible show.”

Was Glee Almost Cancelled After Cory Monteith’s Death?


After the death of Glee star Cory Monteith many fans wondered what would happen to their beloved show. In an interview with E! Online, creator Ryan Murphy reveals he questioned whether the show should continue and how Lea Michelle had the final word.
How did you decide what to do with the show?

Once you're faced with this situation, which is devastating…There's really no way to win in this situation. So our position was, do we go off the air permanently? Do we go off the air until November? Do we start shooting again in January? But the thing that we ultimately found was that our cast and crew wanted to be together, they wanted to go back to work, they wanted to sort of be in a place where they could all remember and discuss Cory sooner than later. As for me, I really had no set opinion. I was willing to do what people wanted.

So who made the call?

Ultimately the person who made the decision was Lea, who felt that the best thing for the cast and crew was to be together and to get back to work and be together every day and talk about our memories of him. So we decided to do that with Lea's blessing and we're going to go back to work and have grief counselors on the set for two weeks because people are really hurting.
